NaNoWriMo

I”m working on my NaNoWriMo story and it is kicking my butt. I have my  hero down cold- his back story and his angst are fully formed in my head. The heroine is another story- she seems to be very elusive. I think part of the problem may be  her name.  Her name is Capri and I keep typing Carpi or Capril.  She must be mad at me for this and therefore is refusing to share much back story with me. All I know is she has a history with a bloke named Nigel and she’s been  in Majorca to recover from her broken heart.

Sebastian, the hero, has just accused her of being a person that leaves when the going gets tough. He just met her, how does he know that and I don’t?

Here’s my inspiration picture of him: (except Sebastian has a scar on his face).

Join me tomorrow (November 7) as I’m featured on the Desert Breeze Publishing blog as one of their new authors. http://desertbreezepublishing.blogspot.com/  They will be publishing  my last year’s NaNoWriMo story, Redemption for the Devil, in July.

  1. When you say, “He just met her, how does he know that and I don’t?” I can totally relate. LOVE it when that happens, though. It’s such a rush not knowing there the character is going sometimes.

    Carpi…that’s funny.

    OH, and great picture for inspiration!!

    • Lynn- yeah. I love it when that happens- but I sure would love “Carpi” to open up to me. LOL! Thanks on the pic- he’s a great actor.

  2. Ooooh, so that’s who you’re spending those NaNoWriMo late night with! Quite yummy!

    The story -what I’ve seen so far – is coming along nicely. Maybe your trouble figuring her out reflects her own confusion this point in her life? You’ve both got some soul-searching to do.

    • Thanks, Romancemama- He is quite yummy- he’s on a BBC show right now called Luther. He used to be on another one I can’t think of right now. Oh yeah- The Wire. LOL!

  3. That’ great.. Will check it out. I love all the cool sites you have turned me on too… I love reading how all these stories are written… Very interesting stuff, plus, my Kindle reading list is blowing up!!!!

    • Thanks Tara- happy to corrupt the younger generation! How’s your own writing going?
